Descripción

This takes the form of a 4-pg booklet detailing the dispersals of monies by an attorney, John C. Hollister, of New Haven. It has the sum ($34.62) filled in, and is signed by Hollister. Also included is a printed receipt which was to be returned to Hollister, and a 2-page ALS dated Dec. 1st, 1899, from the recipient (Mrs. Maimie E. Miller) to a Mr. Hunt, who had participated in organizing the payments, thanking him (never sent). Also there is an autograph receipt, copying the text of the printed one sent by Hollister. In the original envelope from Hollister, postdated New Haven, July 24, 1899, postage intact. An interesting package, showing how the French Spoliation claims were settled many years later; this one relates to the Sloop Mary, and claims paid to the heirs and next of kin of Frederick Hunt, for "damage sustained by capture of the Sloop Mary by French privateers .".
